Sorry I haven’t been posting much. I’ve had a pretty rough year health wise and lately it seems like I don’t have the energy to do anything much other than go to work. I do have a couple of cool posts planned for the hopefully-not-too-distant future. In the mean time, in honour of my long absence from blogging…medical themed ponies!
Nurse Redheart is one of the staple background characters of the “My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic” (MLP:FIM) cartoon series. Her overall look should be sweet, but not impractical. White, pink and red should be the dominate colours, and a few love hearts and or crosses are also key. Instead of carrying a handbag or purse, why not carry a stylish first-aid kit. You can still slip your wallet and keys inside, plus you’ll be well-equipped in the case of an emergency.
Feeling a little loopy? Maybe this is the look for you! This pony, unofficially known as “Screwball” appeared in Ponyville during Discord’s brief reign of chaos. This style is pretty simple, and it’s all in the name. Screw. Ball. Easy! Bonus points if you add a propeller hat and spiral contact lenses into the mix!
This poor little guy was a background character in the “Read it and Weep” episode of MLP:FIM. Again, this is a pony with no official name, but he has been dubbed “Hard Knocks” by the fans. What a little trooper! Channel this guy’s look by wrapping yourself up in a bandage-syle dress and other medical-themed paraphenalia. I’ve been really inspired by vibrant hair colours recently and the magenta of Hard Knocks tail (and, presumably, mane) could look really stunning. On another note, I want all of those shoes so badly, it hurts.
There were actually three different nurse pony toys in G1..but sadly I do not own any of them. They are definitely on my want-list, though!
How are you all this fine Thursday? Munchy and I have been having a grand old week trying our best to keep out of the Melbourne cold by rugging up and sneaking out at lunch times for the occasional hot meal (mmm…cheeseburgers). We’ve also thrown together some outfit ideas for your amusement and inspiration. Enjoy!
The key to Munchy’s look is warm colours. Take your inspiration from Ronald McDonald (I bet that’s a suggestion you never thought you’d receive!) and think in yellows and reds (and stripes!). Throw in fast-food motifs wherever you can…Etsy is a great place to shop for cute accessories such as these hamburger earrings. Oh, and don’t forget to use your Juno-esque hamburger phone (you’ll have to speak up, though).
Going a bit cutesy is another way to rock the junk-food look…and there’s nothing more kawaii than anthropomorphic foodstuffs! Give the look some real pop with ketchup-red lips and nails.
For a formal event, Munchy still sticks to her favourite warm colours, but opts for pastel tones to soften the look a bit. Her handbag has an elegant swirly pattern subtly reminiscent of pretzels, and it just so happens that it’s big enough to carry some for her favourite snacks to keep her energy up when she’s out gadding about. Of course, Munchy has a bit of an irreverent streak, so when even when she’s going formal she isn’t going to tone things down TOO much. I can definitely see her donning the same sublime eye makeup as the model above.
If there is one pony who knows how to relax, it’s Munchy, and she certainly does it in…well not in “style” as such, but in…”abundance” perhaps? That hamburger bed is certainly not something I can imagine many people wanting in their bedrooms but looking at it now, and be honest, don’t you want to try sleeping in it, if only once? Most of my own pyjamas when I was younger were actually just over-sized t-shirt, and this “food porn” tee just seems to perfectly express Munchy’s attitude towards junk food and her sense of humour about the whole “food guilt” issue. So why don’t you pull on your most comfy pair of tube socks, snuggle up with a little hot-dog friend and maybe enjoy some short-stories as a kind of literary bed-time snack. Some people might judge you, but Munchy and I sure won’t!
